I Make Salad

I invented a salad today. I'm sure if I were to google spinach apple salad I'd probably get hundreds of recipes, so I didn't really invent it, but I had never made it and was just throwing stuff together that I found in my fridge. I chopped spinach into little pieces, grated a granny smith apple, grated a carrot, and then grated about 1/3 of a small onion (I'd add even less next time). I poured a little raspberry vinegar on it (to tie together the apple with the spinach and onion), and a bit of olive oil, salt and feta cheese. It was shockingly amazing. All part of our goal to have a healthy vegetable (ie, besides iceberg lettuce) with every dinner.

(Imagine a picture of spinach apple salad here. In a red salad bowl)

If I had a lemon, I would have soaked the grated apple in lemon juice before I added it to the salad so it wouldn't turn brown.

Huh. I'll have to try that although, quite frankly, raspberry vinaigrette scares me. I think it's because I have this thing about mixing veggies with fruits too much. Kinda like carrot/raisin/jello salad...
